voluntary but mandatory (government double-speak)

e: ... a couple of days ago i changed my post office box ... to receive the box, the post office asked for my physical address ... the small print at the bottom of the form said that i was not required to submit my personal information (physical address) ... it was voluntary ... but that the post office would not be able to provide the service without it ... mandatory ...

... lawyers and politicians are to blame ...

... the truth is the opposite of everything they tell you ...

... amercian fascism is here ...

... i told this story to a lawyer at the local tavern ... she said that there was no contradiction ...

... again, lawyers and politicians are to blame ...

... FACT: voluntary and mandatory are mutually exclusive terms ...

... FACT: voluntary and mandatory are antonyms ...

... next, you will voluntarily be microchipped, because it will be mandatory in order to work, buy or sell ... and the media will push it as a good thing ...

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. [Revelation 13:17 KJV]

“This is why it is so important that law enforcement not store license plate reader data gathered on innocent people in long-term databases.” [ACLU-NM spokesman Micah McCoy]

The technology has also been credited with the recovery of 19 missing persons.

VanDyke's Hyundai Accent was spotted by an unmanned traffic camera near Alamogordo, N.M. Because VanDyke's information is in the National Crime Information Center's database, the El Paso Intelligence Center alerted Holland Department of Public Safety investigators.

There is no criminal complaint against VanDyke, police said, but officers in and around New Mexico can stop her car to check her well-being, Dykstra said.

The El Paso Intelligence Center is an information focal point, collecting and analyzing interdiction reports and multi-source intelligence to identify and track trafficking activities and organizations, identify and fill intelligence gaps, and provide tactical intelligence to law enforcement officers in the field.

"I don't know if you would call us green," Tom said during an interview last week, "I guess the process has kind of turned us that way. That was not our intent." [we simply wanted safe water to drink]

"What got me interested in the water situation was that after the Little Bear Fire (in June 2012), we had a major health problem here at the house. We discovered that the only thing that had changed in our lifestyle was the quality of the water," he said. "We researched extensively using both of our science backgrounds and determined that we strongly believe that the extensive treatment of the water by the city caused a chemical reaction, which caused the problem." [water is very likely not safe to drink]

"We did not have blood or water samples from the time the medical problem occurred to prove or disprove the assertion," Tom said. "The city requested we withdraw our application and we did, because they weren't comfortable making the decision. Don't get me wrong, I have the ultimate respect for the members of the village council and gratitude that they are willing to give their personal time to do what has to be done, and they are facing a major problem with the water."

These of the kinds of classes the Farmington Police Department offers in its Citizens' Academy.

Farmington police are accepting applications for their next academy in September. The classes are on Thursday nights from 6:30 to 9:30. If you're interested in applying (click below)

[laphamsquarterly.org]

Breakfast of Champions

I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty-four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas, or at home—and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed—breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crĂªpes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned-beef hash with diced chilies, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of key lime pie, two margaritas and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert…Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and messages, a telephone, a notebook for planning the next twenty-four hours, and at least one source of good music…all of which should be dealt with outside, in the warmth of a hot sun, and preferably stone naked.

Ruidoso couple collects rain water for drinking
aug 16, 2013

When they [the McNeils] started having some health problems, they decided to take control of the water they drink.

The McNeils catch the rain on their roof ...

There is a filter system under the house.

The McNeils tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 they first started noticing health problems after the Little Bear Fire.  They were concerned about water contamination.

Boil water advisory lifted in Ruidoso amidst concerns
jul 15, 2013

After ten days, the Boil Water Advisory in Ruidoso has been lifted.  But many people are still concerned after the village was accused about lying about the purity of the water. [true: village was lying] State officials said someone put a filter in the system. [true: filter used] 

Investigators said that filter gave inaccurate readings about how pure the water really was. [true: gave better results] The state said that filter was used for two weeks.

According to investigation documents, the village told the state that the filter was used as an experiment.  They were hoping the filter might help them meet their water purification requirements. [true: village met their water purification requirements for two weeks][what about now?]

http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S3098441.shtml?cat=500
-------------------
e: ...  ... do the McNeil's think the village water is safe to drink? [no; they are concerned about water contamination] ... but the author never asks them ... and the author will not connect the dots ... the media is there to hide the truth ... to maximize the minimum and minimize the maximum ... to console you.

... also, watch for the State to begin billing for rainwater collection ... the Carlsbad Irrigation District is now charging 7 cents per gallon for non-potable water (for oil and gas exploration) ... and Albuquerque is about to count rainfall as a watering day (with associated fines) ...

... at 7 cents per gallon, 19,000 gallons of rainwater would equal $1330 ... (and rainwater is the good stuff) ... when they tried that in Argentina, that's when the real trouble began.

... i know an old-timer farmer who says 1 inch of rainwater is better than 10 inches of well/irrigation water for the crops ... it is that good.

automotive repair (ranch truck)

e: ... i helped the rancher's brother repair [the old truck] on monday and tuesday ... a flange had broken off the exhaust pipe just at the exhaust manifold ... and the rancher's brother was worried that a valve would burn out if it wasn't fixed ... so i drove the truck into town sunday night and we repaired it at his home ...

... to do the job we used a hydraulic jack to lift the front end of the truck a good three feet off the ground ... then we removed the problem piece of exhaust by unbolting it from both sides of the exhaust manifold ... and then heating the pipe at the seam three feet further back with an acetylene torch until it was red hot ... and then i pulled from the front and the rancher's brother pulled from the back until the pipe separated ...

... once we had the piece of pipe removed ... we needed to cut about three inches off the end where the flange had broken off ... and then replace it with the same size piece that included a flange ... fortunately the rancher's brother had a replacement pipe in his junk pile, otherwise we would have had to go to a you-pull-it salvage yard ...

... to make a straight cut we used a pipe cutter ... then we used the acetylene torch to weld the replacement piece on ... and it turned out perfectly ...

... the reassembly was a job by itself because of an old jury-rigged repair we discovered ... but we ultimately succeeded ...

... i don't want to think about what it would have cost at a repair shop.

KGB=DHS

The KGB is the commonly used initialism for the Russian: Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti or Committee for State Security. [Department of Homeland Security]

During the Cold War, the KGB actively suppressed "ideological subversion"—unorthodox political and religious ideas and the espousing dissidents.

Sedition

In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order.

Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or state, giving aid to enemies, or levying war against one's state. Sedition is encouraging one's fellow citizens to rebel against their state, whereas treason is actually betraying one's country by aiding and abetting another state. Sedition laws somewhat equate to terrorism and public order laws.

Obama says phone spying not abused, will continue
aug 9, 2013

"I am comfortable that the program currently is not being abused," Obama said. "I am comfortable that if the American people examined exactly what was taking place, how it was being used, what the safeguards were, that they would say, `You know what? These folks are following the law.’" [President Barack Obama]

Every day, the NSA sweeps up the phone records of all Americans.

... could create similar databases of people’s credit card transactions, hotel records and Internet searches.

The speech followed a week of leaks in which government officials anonymously described a serious al-Qaida threat revealed in a phone conversation intercepted by U.S. surveillance. Obama reminded the public of that threat as he began his justification for the massive data collection programs.

gasoline (just like wasabi)

... i have two cans of gas and no decent spout ... so i tried the oklahoma credit card, a hose ... my first attempt was a success ... and i was able to put a few gallons in [the truck] no problem ... but then when i was trying to fill the tank on [the pump], i couldn't get it to flow ... it would only start and stop ... so after a dozen attempts i went back to [the truck] to top it off ... and that is when i inhaled, and swallowed, a mouthful of gasoline ... nice big gulp ... and then out through the nose ... wowoowowow ... just like wasabi.

update:

e: ... i told this story to the [rancher's brother] ... he said my problem was that i didn't clear hose between uses ... he said you have to either blow through the hose or swing it ... he said i had gasoline somewhere in the middle of the hose ... which is why i couldn't get the steady stream ... and why i swallowed the gasoline ... good to know.

... also ... i don't know if you're supposed to inhale when you suck ... i will find out and report back ... (though i'm not eager to try again real soon.)

... yesterday i learned that the new cool bad thing to do in high school is to snort (granulated sugar) pixie sticks off your desk ... and to smoke (hard sugar) smarties ... imitating powder cocaine and crack cocaine use ...

... i predict that the next "drug" epidemic will be high school kids snorting and smoking blue bath salts ... and i will blame the media, the cops, and local businesses for starting the trend.

A beauty store has a similar product — crystal blue bathing salts.
Debbie Ball, owner of The Candy Lady store, shows off her new line of 'meth candy,' made from sugar rock candy.

... there is fear that the grass that has begun to grow will burn up and die ... or that we have all that we will get ... there is fear that the remaining ranchers who have not yet sold out will begin to do so ... more supply for sale would push prices down again ...

... i am looking for prices to immediately fall lower on aug 5 and aug 6 ... failure to immediately fall lower jeopardizes this bearish stance ...

... august contract closed at 120.65 ... i am  looking down to 115 over next 2-4 weeks against resistance at 122 ...

... october contract closed at 124.475 ... i am looking down to 119 over next 2-4 weeks against resistance 126 ...

... any unexpected push past those cited resistance levels would instead strongly suggest that the lows for the year were made at the may/june lows.

The homeowner was arrested on several charges, including not having a license for that many animals. Without that license, you can have six pets, four of them dogs, in the city of Albuquerque. [police arrest you]
